UPDATE ON NC COURTS: It was just announced that, beginning on Monday, March 16, "most cases" in the North Carolina courts will be continued (postponed to a later date) for at least 30 days. This will include cases scheduled for district criminal court administrative sessions. Courthouses will still be open and staffed, but the goal is to reduce traffic and large numbers of people in the courthouse. If you have a court date coming up, you can check the status of your case with the Watauga County Clerk of Court by calling (828) 268-6600. (Note: the Clerk is asking people to wait until at least next week to call, because they will be working on rescheduling cases and won't have information about new court dates immediately.) You can also access information at the North Carolina Courts website: https://www.nccourts.gov/. Domestic Violence cases will still be heard without delay.
Student Legal Clinic appointments are available by phone during Appalachian State University's extended spring break. Call (828) 262-8284 to schedule an appointment. We will be posting more detailed information soon about our operations going forward and meeting options for App State students who need legal advice.
